The public can fall for strange fads, and this is one that has been going on for several years. The government also has decided to get into the zombie act to promote disaster preparedness. No one believes -- or at least, one hopes -- that zombies exist. Yet, arms manufacturers are building and selling zombie weapons and references to zombies have popped up throughout American society. Why do people fall for such lunacy? The answer might be that it is fun, and no one takes it seriously. A zombie is like having Halloween all year long. Sooner or later, the zombie craze will disappear along with the merchandise. Marketers have to profit while the dead walk.
